PostSubject: New race rumours   Thu Oct 13 2011, 15:28

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, seeing as it's a rumour but not a Dark Eldar one, but anyway...

A friend just pointed me in the direction of Warseer. I didn't care for it much, there seemed to be a lot more bickering, it wasn't laid out clearly enough, amongst other things, but I digress. He sent me over there after he got all excited about a new race coming out who will supposedly be allied with the Tau - the Demiurg. Apparently they're sort of a reworking of Squats or something. Rumours and pictures seem to have dried up since about March/April time though, and it struck me as quite bizarre that if there have been rumours circulating for that long they wouldn't have announced something, even concept designs, at Games Day. It sounds dodgy to me, but I don't fancy trawling the internet any longer to find concrete denials or confirmations. Has anyone else seen or heard anything about them?

I heard about them about a year ago. Forgeworld already makes ships for them for the Tau to use for Battlefleet Gothic games. Really the reason we havn't heard anything new is because right now GW has a closed lip plan right now because they are havn't problems with other company about copyrights. It seems that if GW came up with the rules and another company made a model for it and then GW makes a model the other company can sue them for breaking their copyright. But its been in the works for sometime about the Demiurg now and I wouldn't be surprised to see them in the next Tau codex and also alittle more info the Demiurgs are the ones that gave the Tau Ion techology.

My friend did cite the existence of the Battlefleet Gothic ship as indication of their imminent arrival. The Tau seem like a great way to bring a number of different ideas to 40k, as their fluff allows for all manner of alliances. Quite clever on the part of GW, I have to say. And it allows them the luxury of releasing different races without having to release an entire Codex for them. Thanks for that info!

They kind of remind me of the Volus from the Mass Effect games, if that's what they're going to look like. I'm unsure about them personally - I like the fact that 40k is different to WFB, and this just seems to be an attempt to make them more similar by bringing a dwarf race into it. If they look good and make a degree of sense then that's fair enough, plus it might give all the people who have old Squat models lying around something to use them for...

It may happen as an addendum to Tau - to give them warp technology as at the moment tau don't have warp drives which is baaaaaaad!

But as for a race of their own I doubt it - Mantic has launched their 'forge fathers' line which essentially are squats.

Why I don't go there. (Also they didn't like me referring to Apple as a cult - and I use a mac!)
